(IRVINE, CA) – This is the third and final part of a news series covering the murder and government cover-up of Colonel James E. Sabow, a senior Marine Corps officer at MCAS El Toro, CA.  Here is a link to Part 2 abd here is a link to Part 1.

Colonel James E. Sabow, age 51, was found dead by his wife in their backyard patio at MCAS El Toro on the morning of January 22, 1991.

The death was reported as a suicide from a self-inflicted shotgun wound.  The death certificate was signed by the Orange County Coroner on January 23rd,  following an autopsy by a pathologist under contract with the county.   A succession of reports from various government agencies over the years all reported suicide.

Just another tragic military suicide, you say. In this case, the answer is a resounding “NO.”

The forensic evidence supports homicide; a violent and brutal murder, together with a shotgun blast in the mouth to stage suicide.

Marines do not leave their dead on the field of battle but in this case, a decorated Marine Corps Colonel with 28 years of loyal service to the Marine Corps, including 122 combat missions in Vietnam was bludgeoned to death in his own backyard in the Marine Corps’ premier jet fighter base.

No one on this earth knew James Sabow better than his wife.  Responding to a DOD investigation of the death of her late husband, Sara Sabow-Olphant in a written affidavit on April 1, 2003, wrote that, “I would suggest that the truth be stated as to the circumstances leading up to Col. Sabow’s murder and the identification of those involved. This report, like the rest of this bogus investigation, is filled with lies, misquotes and cover- ups protecting the involvement of the U.S. Marine Corps and the Federal Government  of the United States in the murder of my late husband…”

So before you dismiss this story as nonsense, take a few moments to reflect on the facts presented in this three part news series.

The death of Marine Colonel James E. Sabow has taken a new twist with the discovery of a fraudulent autopsy photograph (Fig. 1B) in the official DOD investigation of his death.  Bryan Burnett, a San Diego crime scene reconstructionist, discovered the fraudulent  while reviewing the autopsy photographs earlier this month.

Colonel Sabow was found dead in his quarters at MCAS El Toro on January 22, 1991, after he requested a court martial for alleged charges due to personal misuse of government aircraft. Colonel Sabow at the time of his death was still was not certified to fly the aircraft in question, the Kingair and Saberliner. [1]   During the first week of January 1991, he  was in St. Louis studying the aircraft and taking tests in the flight simulator. Prior to his death he could not be the first officer in these aircraft.  Any flight that he took on these aircraft were training flights and they included approaches to a variety of airfields and to accumulate flight hours. These flights usually were on weekends because the planes were being used for other purposes during the week and piloted by those officers who were already qualified.  Every flight log including the destination and the personnel on board had to be filed and approved by the first officer. And any items to be transported by anyone on the flight had to be approved by the first officer. Consequently, any allegations against Colonel Sabow were completely false and probably this was part of the reason that the IG left MCAS El Toro with no instructions for any further investigation of Colonel Sabow.

Colonel Sabow was described by his wife as relaxed.  After breakfast, he watched the latest TV coverage of Desert Storm.  At 0830 on January 22,1991, Sally Sabow, upset by the many phone calls that morning to and from the Marine attorney assigned to her husband,  decided to attend morning Mass at a nearby Catholic Church.  She was late but if she hurried, she could make communion. On the way out the door, she heard her husband answer the phone three times in quick succession.  The other party never replied.  This was the last time she heard his voice before finding him dead on their patio after returning from church and a quick errant.

If Colonel Sabow didn’t commit suicide, then who killed him?  The DOD crime scene reconstruction by Bryan Burnett supports the hypothesis that Colonel  Sabow was killed by a government assassination team.

Doctored Photo In Marine Murder Probe (PART1)

Fraudulent  autopsy photo supports murder of Marine Corps Colonel and cover-up by DOD.

First in a three part series.

 (IRVINE, CA) –  The death of Marine Colonel James E. Sabow in his quarters at Marine Corps Air Station El Toro, California, has taken a new twist with the discovery of a fraudulent autopsy photograph in DOD’s death investigation report to the House Armed Service Committee, hiding the tramline bruise to the back of Colonel Sabow’s head, a tell tale sign of a violent blow by a blunt object like a lead pipe or baseball bat. 

The evidence supports a staged suicide with a shotgun blast in the mouth to prevent the disclosure of covert activities at former Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) El Toro, CA. 

These include the transport of weapons to Central and South American on CIA proprietary airlines and use of these same aircraft to bring cocaine into the U.S.

The fraudulent autopsy photo was discovered earlier this month by Bryan Burnett, Cardiff, CA, a criminalist and crime scene analyst with over 20 year experience in crime scene reconstruction.

According to Burnett only DOD had the capability to alter the autopsy photo.  The DOD investigation report to Congress in November 2004 made no mention of the tramline bruise.

The fraudulent photo hides the tramline bruise caused by a violent blow to the right side of the head with a blunt object, resulting in loss of consciousness and immediate death.  

The forensic evidence support that this was followed by a shotgun blast into the mouth to stage a suicide.

Marine Corps Communiqué: Smoking Gun In Colonel Sabow’s Murder?

Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) finds no support for homicide, despite forensic evidence and experts who found homicide the likely cause of death.  (Updated 1/2/2012)

(CAMP PENDLETON, CA) – There are good reasons to question the Navy Criminal Investigative Agency (NCIS) cold case investigation into the death of Marine Colonel James E. Sabow who was found dead in his quarters at MCAS El Toro, CA, by his wife on the morning of January 22, 1991.

NCIS is the law enforcement agency of the U.S. Navy. It is the successor organization to the former Naval Investigative Service (NIS), which was responsible for the crime scene investigation.

One of  the  unanswered questions is  the ‘suicide’ communiqué by BG Tom Adams, the Commanding General of MCAS El Toro, to General Al Grey, Commandant of the Marine Corps, reporting the death of Colonel Sabow.  This message was dated over 8 hours before the death of Colonel James E. Sabow.  The explanation for the date was not investigated by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) and supports a murder conspiracy at the highest levels in the Marine Corps, according to Dr. David Sabow, the younger brother of Colonel Sabow and is only one of a number of unexplained discrepancies.
